then we simply cannot do this .... i will not abet you being so upset .... as much as i looked foward to the exchenge, i would not have you feel put upon .... i would very much like for you to feel like you belong here .... your absence would be a detriment to the whole babble community, you bring so much here .... babble could much more easily get along without me
i'm really panicky about you being unhappy .... i will not say that you should just not read .... if we do not feel like having to defend anything, that should be sufficient ..... especially in this forum ... especially between two friends
i hope you will except my apology .... i honestly thought that a gaunlet had been thrown down and that it would be safe to exchange views, even in the area of politics ..... i thought you had brought it up, because the issues i offered were more about free speech .... i would never want to inhibit your speech in any way
but i like bill clinton
jimi hendrix, in case you hadn't guessed.

i remember all my life
raining down as cold as ice
shadow of a man
a face in the window
crying in the night
the night goes into
morning just another day
happy people pass my way
looking in their eyes
i see a memory
i never realized
how happy you made me
oh, mandy, you came and you gave without taking .....
